Right click on a cluster spot and select New ALE Window.
Previous QSOs will be shown under the Logbook Tab which does not happen by double clicking on the Logbook.

I was able to repro this with the steps provided.

To the point G3UCQ is making... there must be a different treatment of how the Logbook tab is refreshed depending on whether you open this from the logbook... or from selecting a spot (with a previously worked call).

This issue has a couple layers, but it's mainly due to the use of a timer that occasionally (kinda) causes the Logbook tab to update rather than a more deterministic approach, which deliberately updates the tab when the dependency of the tab changes.

The documentation for the product acknowledges that this tab exists, but doesn't explain what it does or how to use it. I've opened another issue about that.

It's against what I believe in, but because it has historically been hard to get a good description of desired behaviour, I'm going to take a stab at it myself and forge ahead. Here's what I'll implement, unless there are (promptly) some objections:

If the ALE is opened to add a record, the Logbook tab remains empty until the user explicitly does a search.

If the ALE is opened to edit an existing record (by double-clicking in the a logbook view) the Logbook tab will populate with a search on the selected callsign. If the tab is opened with an existing record and the "Next" or "Prev" buttons are used to navigate, the content of the Logbook tab will be refreshed for the newly selected callsign.

These behaviours should occurr if the logbook tab was ivsible or not when the window was opened; or when the Next or Prev buttons were used. Hiding the Logbook tab doesn't change its behaviour. When it is next visited, it should already be in the expected state and hte user doesn't need to refresh or perform another search.

The user can use the search buttons to populate the Logbook tab; these buttons are adjacent to the "Call" and "Locator" edit fields, as well as the "Country" drop-down.
